In three quarters of century they hare re

licked our mother, and fenced in a continent.
In less lime than it took Methuselah to get

In aeventy-fivo yeate we have not only

the previous four thousand years., The.pro

and its truth made immortal as Washington

made most signally manifest. Under its
harmonious wording, a Repnblio has grown

taken any other system of government a

Ml'RDRrt OP SIX CHILIREW BY TIH FOR.
MIR NURSE OF THE PRINCE OF AVAL EM.
Mrs. B rough, the former Nurse of the
Prince of Wales, has recently in London cut
the throat of six of her children. Her hus
band suspecting her fidelity refused to live
with her. .
He left the house in a very low and Jejuc
ted state, the woman continuing to keep pos
session of the bouse, with the six poor chil
dren. The discovery of the murder was
madu by some workmen who were passing
the cottage at an early hour in ihe moruingi
end seeing a pillow stained with blood out
side one of the windows, knocked at the door.
No answer being given, they found the wo
man with ber throat cut, but not dead. Two
dead children, with wounds in their throats
were lying near ber.
In the other bedrooms they found four
more children who had been murdered.
Their throats had been severed with a razor
which was lying near. Mr. Izod, a aurgeon,
of Either, was sent for, who dressed the wo
man's wounds, and she soon recovered sufli-
cioiitly to be able to speak. When the
wound in the woman's throat was dressed
she said that she was sorry she had not done
it more effectually.
The wretched woman slated that she hsd
moro difficulty in cutting Ihe throat of the in
fant thnn sho had in killing the other five.
1 he former, she said, caused her a deal of
trouble in committing the act, as it was
awake, but the others being fast asleep, she
killed them easily.
The husband, at (Re time the tragedy
was Committed, was not in the village, but
was understood to have gone lo town, and
upon hearing ihe shocking news, was com
pletely paralyzed. .
The police have been placed in charge of
the murderess, to see that she does not make
any further attempt to destroy her life by
tearing open the wound.
During Commodore Perry's lute visit to
Japan, himself and suite were entertained at
a feast by lha natives. Cooked worms, fried
snakes, and a variefy of indigestible com
pounds were served up, of which they weie
obliged to partake through etiquette. Hure
after, a strong stomach may be considered as
a high recommendation in our deplomatiats.
Tire FfciTJve Law. The Senato of Con
necticut has passed a bill providing that
hereafter no jail, court-house, or other pub'io
building of that State, shall be used for the
custody of a fugitive slave, A bill is a'so
before the same body which inflicts a fine of
$5000 upm any person who shall lay a claim
o a fugitive slave iu Hut 5lale, and shall
not prove his claim good.
The Washington Union administers a se
vere but just rebuke lo Jeflerson Davis, the
Secretary ol War, who is the most influential
member of the Pierce Cabinet and Ihe
Suulhern secessionists, when it says: "North
or South, the mas of the people of these
S'ates place a value upon the Union which
will prove a never failm bar to a surrender
of those blessings at the instigation of a
nerde orgimbliug, speculating t.kavi.h, and I

The Pacilie IUilioud Scheme, which was

(D Li n editorial on the "congressional
question" during our absence last week,
Col. Straub is said to have "placed it out of
bit power to be a candidate at this time,
by hit own deliberate action at the former
convention." As an act of justice, it is.
perhaps, proper to say that we have no
personal knowledge of such an arrange
ment, although we heard at Ihe time that
such an arrangement had been made.
THE FOURTH OF JILY.
That noble . patriot, the elder . John
Adams, seventy-eight years ago, forseeing
how the national birth-day would be cele
brated, said, "it ought to be commemorated
as the day of "deliverance, by tolemn acts
of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to
be solemnized with pomp and parade, with
shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires,
and illuminations Irom one end of this con
tinent to the other, from this time forward
for evermore." And so it should be, and
so it has been, year after year, and will be,
we trust till the end of time. : We are
among those who abate not a jot of heart
or hope for the Republic. We believe
that there is a deep and earnest feeling of
patriotism in the universal American mind ;
which will build up, sustain and perpetuate
our Institutions. Labor it glad to find a
holiday wherein it may cease from its toil,
and rejoice untrammeled ; the buoyant spirit
of youth, tumultuous and noisy, will ever,
when the national Jubilee arrive, with
guns, squibs and rockets, celebrate its annual
advent. The masses will, irom a love of
lun, folly, fuss and pagantry greet tho day
with a wild and hilarious jubilation. The
Declaration of Independence will, year
after year, probably forever, be formally
read, but this is not, and will not be, we
trust, all. A crowd of holy and thronging
memories will press upon the heart, and
thoughtful minds will cfcall the example
ot the great fathers of the republic lor emu
lation and immitation. The story of their
sacrifices, privations and sufferings handed
down from sire to ton, generation after
generation, will with a potent, talismanic
power move, the deep feelings of the heart
to an earnest desire to prove worthy de
scendants of noble fathers, fit inheritors
and preservers oi tho bequeathed benefits
of their final triumph.
But we are not intending to peu an eulo
gy, but simply to chronicle the proceedings
on
The Forr-TH or July is SVnoiky.

' THE4TII Or JULY IN BHAMOKIN.
On our way from Philadelphia we arri
ved at Shamokin on the morning of the 4th
ins!., and remained there during the day.
Extensive preparations had been made to
celebrate out oalions bitlh-i'.ay in a proper
manner. The great luminary of light also
did his best to add warmth to the proceed
ings. In the forenoon the children of the
schools paraded in procession, headed by
teachers and others. Their great number
surprised us considerable, and we began to
doubt whether children or coal was going
lo be the greatest staple of production at
Shamokin. About 2 o'clock. P. M. the
citizens generally, preceeded by the Sha
mokin Guards, a fine company commanded
by Capt. David N. Lake, proceeded to the
woods adjoining the town, where seals,
&c, bad been prepared lor the occasion.
The venerable J. P. Helfenstien was called
to the chair, assisted by Wm. Fagely and
K'.mber Cleaver, Eqs., as Vice Presidents,
and Dr. J. J. John as Secretary. The
chairman having briefly stated the object of
the meeting, a prayer was offered by the
Rev. Mr. Ehreheart, at the conclusion of
which "America" was sung in excellent
style by Dr. Alwaler, Mr. R. Helfenstien
and s. ni. Kase, fcsq. tV e were perticu-
larly gratified with the rich, deep, full
toned base ol the Doctor. S. M. Kase,
Esq., then'delivered a well written oration

which lor wit, humor, and sentiment has
rarely been equalled. It was admirably
spoken and was received with rounds of
applause. The Doctor commenced by al
luding in a humorous manner lo Shamokin
tome five years ago when it was almost
deserted, and contrasted its appearance
then with its present flourishing condition.
We never publuh 4th oi July orations, ex
cept the short dhes by the people, com
monly called toasts, but we were anxious
to make the Doctort an exception, and
regret that we could not prevail upon him
for a copy.

The geniuses of demolition ar.d re-con.

Those owning property in the vicinity
would improve correspondingly; others
more remote, for human nature is always

of improvement would be fairly begun.

SUMMARY OF NEWS
BY THE LATEST MAILS.
IMPORTANT FROM EUROPE.
Arrival or thr America.
THE RCaSlANS DEFEATED 171 SILISTRIA.
Great Victories of tht Turkt..
We have later foreign newt by the arrival
nt Halifax of the steamer America, from Liv
erpool. The Russians have been obliged lo
raise the siege of Silisttia and retreat, before
any of Ihe allied troops had reached Ihe
teens of action. They are also said to have
relinquished all their position, on the left
bank of tho Danube, except Hiraovia, Mat
schin and Issarktchi. All apprehensions of
their adva c on Ihe Bilkai.s are at an end
for Ihe prrs -t.t. The Turks are said to have
crossed lo Ginrgevo, killed 400 Russians, and
taken nine guns. The allied fleet wst con
centrating at Sebastopol, which will proba.
bly be soon attneked. The raising of the
siege of Silistria was caused by a great victo
ry of Ihe Turks who, on Ihe 15th of June,
sailed out of the works ihere, attacked the
Russian in their trenches, and, after a severe
battle discomfitted and pursued them so that
they fled across the Danube. The Turks
destroyed all tho Rnsainn siege works.
Prince GortschakofTand Generals Ludcrs and
Schilders were wounded in this battle.
Another action is said lo have been fonght,
in which a 'Russian division defeated two
Turkish brigades. Prinre Pukiewich is
said to have received orders from S. Peters
burg to retire beyond thn Pruth. A oonspi.
racy to assassinate Louis Napoleon has been
detected iu France, and ISO persons arrested
In S
pain,
Generals Orlando and Messina
have been arrested fur harboiing General
O'Donnel. In Asia, the Russiuns have been
surprised and beaten by the Circassians at
Kariul pnss.
Disastrous Fire io Philadelphia. ,
The National Theatre and Chinese Museum
destroyed.
About hairpasl nine o'clock on Wednesday
evening commenced one of Ihe most disas
trous fires il has lately been our lot to record.
Owing to some carelessness in the handling
of matches behind the scenes of ihe Nation.
al Theatre, at the comer of Ninth and Ches
nut street, fire was communicated lo the
scenes, and the flumes spread with a rapidity
that defied all lha efforts of the fireman. A
lurid glare was cuM over the. sky, and the
alarm spread ihrot'ghnui the city.
The National Theatre was entirely de.
stroyed. Tho audience escaped, we believe,
without a single exception.
The Chinese Muncrtm biuKlinjj, iu the rear
of the Theatre, one of the most massive and
extensivo structures in the country, was
entirely destroyed.
The Girard Hons3 caught fire al the cor
nice, which was of wood, but was eventually
saved wi'.h much difficulty.
From Ihe Museum and Theatie the flames
spread eastward, to the adjoining houses on
Chestnut and Sansom streets. The' buildings
occupied by James S. Earle'a picture gallery,
and Evans & Co.'s laige dry goods store,
were soon utterly destroyed Many of the
valuable pictures in Mr. Kaile't gallery were
burned, as also a large amount of picture
frames, looking glasses, and other stock.
The fire extended to the southeast, as Tar
as Eighth and Sansom streets, where the
assiduous and unremitting exertions of the
firemen checked the progress of ihe flames,
The Girard House was saved the npper
stories only being damaged and much of the
furniture spoiled by the deluge of water.

Boston, July 5. The new Catholic Church
at Dorchester, in this Mate, was blown up I
with gunpowder and almost entiiely desnoy
ed yesterday. There is considerable excite-
! ment. Some accuse Ihe Know Nothings, and
others s;iy the members of tho Church had
deposited powder and arms there for Ihe pro
tection o! the Church, and that the explosion
was accidental.
